Man who threatened supervisor’s life in custody

Published

on

John Lumbley, the man who threatened Warren County District 3 Supervisor Shawn Jackson on social media Saturday, is in custody.

The threat came as a comment under a Vicksburg Daily News story about Jackson’s asking for a special meeting to remove the now retired Mississippi state flag from county properties.

“LMFAO this is where the bulls**t stops,” Lumbley wrote, followed by, “These ‘N’ igers fixing to get shot.”

Deputies with the Warren County Sheriff’s office identified, located and interviewed Lumbley Saturday and simultaneously executed a search warrant at his home on Thornhill Drive.

After consulting with the Warren County District Attorney, Lumbley, 53, has been charged with making terroristic threats over the internet and is being held in the Warren County Jail, according to a press release from the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.

He will make an initial court appearance Monday. If convicted, Lumbley faces up to 10 years behind bars.
